Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Drifted away from you mother’s pray’rs,
Drifted away, thinking no one cares;
Jesus is calling, while mercy spares,
His love reaches down to you.

Refrain:
His love reaches down to you,
His love reaches down to you,
O be not dismayed,
Tho’ far you have strayed,
His love reaches down to you.

2 Hasten and turn from the world away,
Turn from the things that hold you and me;
Only believe it and you shall see,
His love reaches down to you. [Refrain]

3 Love, so unmeasured, so full and free,
Flows like a river for you and me;
Only believe it and you shall see,
His love reaches down to you. [Refrain]

4 Shadows are gathering, night is near,
Why do you linger in doubt and fear?
List to the message so full of cheer,
His love reaches down to you. [Refrain]
